Went full EC stack this morning with decent results. I was a little more fatigued than yesterday, but not as much as usual so I call it a net win. I did get gassed as the workout progressed, but my cardio seemed to stay strong. I didn’t have any shakes or tremors. I’ll go again tomorrow and see how it works. The nice thing about this setup is that I get to take a bunch of days off. This should help keep my tolerance levels low.
Still trying to push through this week. It’s going to be tough, but once the new schedule hits and the Earth Day program is over, it should ease up a bit. Just need to get through my to-do lists.
One thing I learned: You can get stuck in a ‘bullshit zone’. This is the place where you’ve lost connection to the world. You’re not focused on the small things and self awareness. Road rage is a great and relevant example of this. The key is to recognize it and steer yourself out by being mindful of your thoughts and feelings.
One piece of motivation: The small things aren’t so small. An interesting philosophy combining this idea that self awareness is connected to feeling. As mentioned in the Tim Ferriss podcast, the guy (forgot his name) suggested that just the ability to feel is something we shouldn’t take for granted. Enjoy the sunshine, the smell of trees and understand that although these things seem small and trivial, they’re actually big.
Three ideas: Maybe there’s a way to leave video feedback for the invention convention without someone manning a station. I need to investigate this!
